Can this be applied on main exterior fiber glass door and do we need to apply polyurethane after applying this gel.
Asked by: SRR
Yes, our Varathane Gel Stain may be applied to exterior fiberglass doors. We recommend applying our Varathane Spar Urethane to protect the surface once the Gel Stain has dried for a minimum of 24 hours: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Gloss-Water-Based-Exterior-Spar-Urethane-Case-of-2-250041H/202057143

Can this again be used on interior painted wood doors to make them look more natural?

Asked by: Sk
Our Varathane Gel Stain may be applied to wood, fiberglass, and composite surfaces. Previous coatings should be removed prior to applying the stain to allow even penetration and adhesion.

Can I use this to re-stain hardwood floors? I am refinishing a room and need a floor stain.

Can I use this to re-stain hardwood floors? I am refinishing a room and need a floor stain.
Asked by: AlexC
Happy to clear things up, Alex! We do not recommend Rust-Oleum Varathane Gel Stain for use on floor surfaces. Instead, we recommend Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Wood Stains! Please keep in mind, when using on a floor it will need to be topcoated with a suitable floor polyurethane to ensure adhesion and durability. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Early-American-Premium-Wood-Stain-266163/203332252

Can I use this on a white metal garage door? Do I have to take the garage door down?

Asked by: DIYMom
Not at all! As long as you're careful and protect the surrounding areas, you can stain the door using Varathane Gel Stain. Often times, it's nice to use plastic sheets and painters tape around the areas that you're not staining. This product is thick so you'll have control during the application.

1-qt. Early American Gel Stain (Case of 2) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stain but stinks. This stain works well but is very slow to dry and smells terrible. It is a decent stain though. I do wish it was avilable in stores and as individual cans.
Date published: 2014-01-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is amazing - transforms! Amazing what you can do with this product. Take a crummy old door and make it look like beautiful stained wood. You can touch up old stained wood, rub on similar color items to freshen the look.....endless. Takes a little time, but beats having to sand something down to raw wood and take take something vinyl, painted, metal etc. to look like wood! Varathane products are awesome.
